Report: Phillies To Offer Hamels 6 Years, $130 Million
By Spike Eskin
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – I’m not entirely sure what to make of contract offers leaked to the press these days, but we’ve got a new one for Cole Hamels.
The Phillies are sending signals that they are planning to make an initial offer to star lefthanded pitcher Cole Hamels for about $130 million over six years within the next few days, sources familiar with the team’s thinking told CBSSports.com.
The Phillies are believed to have had some conversations in recent days with Hamels, and while no official offer has been made yet, sources say the team is interested in doing a deal in the range of Matt Cain’s six-year arrangement with the Giants.
Wake me when it’s over?
